Plus, when I workout with someone else, I’m usually concerned about how they’re feeling… are we running too slow, doing too much, etc. I forget to actually focus on my own workout.
I do have exceptions to this rule:
- Group exercise classes (So much fun with a friend)
- Steady-state cardio (Elliptical, long runs, etc.)
- Long walks and hiking (I get bored without a buddy)
So, I guess I like a workout buddy when I’m not in the mood to kick my butt in the gym. 🙂
Fortunately I had the lovely company of my friend Merri on my morning walk with Sadie! After the gym (BodyPump + 20 minutes on the elliptical), we headed to my apartment to pick up the pup before taking her on a nice long walk around Lake Eola.
Merri made the time fly by. If I didn’t have that silly office job to get to this morning, I gladly would’ve kept walking for another hour or so.
After our walk, I came home ready for breakfast.
I first toasted a cinnamon spice Alternative Bagel before topping it with peanut butter, nectarine slices, nutmeg and chia seeds.
With the way that that nectarines were layered, it reminded me of a double cheeseburger… only not quite so greasy and a lot more colorful.
Time to get to work! 😀
Question of the Morning
- Do you prefer working out alone or with a buddy?
